We hope that you find this site useful and informative.


Runanga School is 8km north of Greymouth, on the West Coast. We currently have over 50 students, in years 0-8. Our excellent staff all contribute to provide a positive schooling experience for every student.


Runanga School enjoys support from other agencies, like Kidscan, Milk in Schools, Fruit in Schools and Duffy Books.


We want to care for the well-being of our children and create a positive environment where the children are motivated to excel. We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) school.

 Our school vision is: Loving to Learn, Learning for Life’.
